Tribal Men’s Services Program

The mission of the Tribal Men’s Services Program is to deliver relief and support to male victims and male victims with their accompanying dependents who have suffered physical or emotional abuse from domestic violence, sexual assault, stalking, etc., including those who survived victimization when they were a child or youth.

The Men’s Services Program serves Alaska Native/ American Indian adult male victims and survivors within the Bristol Bay Region.

If you or someone you know is a victim of domestic violence or survivor of child abuse, know that it is never the victim’s fault and it is time to get the help that you need. When faced with a life-threatening situation, do not hesitate to call 911.

There is also the Tribal Men’s Services Program, 907-843-3014, where you can get resources and referrals to stabilize your situation.

If you don’t feel comfortable with calling the Tribal Men’s Services Program, make sure that you talk to someone that you can trust. It could be a relative, friend, neighbor, coworker, or a spiritual advisor.
No one ever deserves to be abused. No one. It can have a crippling effect on male victims and the abuse should not be allowed to continue. Don’t be afraid to reach out and get the help that you need.

HOUSING SERVICES
The Tribal Men’s Services Program pro-vides free shelter to victims of domestic violence and survivors of child abuse for male victims and male victims with their dependent children. Since there is a housing shortage in the Region, the program may not be able to locate a shelter facility and accommodations can mean hotel, B&B, or other lodging arrangements. Provisions for food and other necessities are provided while in the program.

TRAVEL
Emergency air travel to safe shelter to flee unsafe environments for victims/survivors and their accompanying dependants.

FINANCIAL ASSISTANCE
Some financial assistance is possible for clothing, changing windows and/or locks, etc.
Until such time as OVC implements re-vised regulations, program funds for medications, durable medical equipment, and most other medical costs are not allowed.

REFERRALS
Referrals to other service providers for medical / dental / vision care, behavioral health, courthouse, daycare, and other supportive services as it relates to shelter, safety, recovery, and gaining self-sufficiency.

LOCAL TRANSPORTATION
Local transportation to appointments such as rides or taxi vouchers.

PERSONS WITH SPECIAL NEEDS
The Men’s Services Program will make reasonable accommodations to serve persons with special needs.
